Are people reserving certain characters / face-claims? Or does it not matter until the threads actually start beyond interest check?

Any limitations on face claims? Real People/Anime/Art Drawings?

Felt like dropping by and expressing my interest :P. I also actually have read Koisuru, it was a lovely little VN.

Still on the fence, but if I join I'll be using this for my character. A flirt, the sort that knows your eyes are up there, just doesn't care. Original thought was him working as a bartender, but might have him something more simple, like washing dishes in the kitchen or something.

Hi everyone. This sounds like it could be a nice low key game to chill out with. I take it the setting is going to be based solidly in Japanese anime/hentai with suitable names and pictures?

Did you decide on who the characters will be limited to? Did you go for all staff and not guests at all or are guests ok?

I have a picture in mind who is this lady:

 

Misaki Yamamoto.

Haven't decided yet if she's a guest or an employee. If the latter she might be in management I think, though I think she's also rather playful or ditzy. haven't thought too hard about it yet in case there's going to be limits on what I can choose.

Definitely looks like a manager-san to me. :)

Checking back on the thread, on page 1 Lynette said she wanted anime images, not real photos/people. She didn't specify but possibly western art might not have quite the right feel to it either but that's our GMs decision.

Well since we are making claims on certain character images reckon I should throw mine in as well. He currently does not have a name, but I feel he could be staff. I'll hash it out with Lynn whenever those positions become available.

Well, it had said in the original post that it could be visitors. I would imagine that if there were visitors, then they wouldn't be all Japanese... Even with employees, I think it sounds like a place foreigners would be part of, but I agree. Let us wait for GM to say something on the subject.

Hai!  *HUGS*

Just so people know, the reason I reserved a face claim and character is because I am now sitting in a tent in a field with a very unreliable Wifi connection and will be for the next week. I didn't want anyone stealing my character while I was gone.

Hi everyone

Sorry communication has been a wee bit lackluster from my part, i've been busy helping a friend of mine moving, and it's my last week before my vacation starts, so I have a lot to do at work, which in turn becomes overtime. I'll try to answer as many questions as possible, if I missed any, do tell.

Images will be locked to artwork. I'm not going to say that it's completely locked to eastern art, but, I'll put a big ehhhhh on western art, if it fits, it passes, if it doesn't, well, I'll have to turn it down. Same goes for eastern art of course, but, my rules are a bit more lax as the art is more standardized.

I have yet to have found time to decide if characters are locked to employees or if it's both visitors and employees. I am leaning more towards the latter and I have a suitable explanation as to why customers would be locked out of the picture, nipping a bit more from the canon I'm taking inspiration from. If not, well, it won't be limited, I'd love some feedback though. In the end, I'll make the call, but it'd be nice to know what people think. I hate having to mention this, but I suppose I have no choice, if you're indifferent about it, stating so doesn't help me out much. I'm interested in the "Yes or no" responses, not the "Both please" responses.

As far as nationalities goes... I wouldn't lock the doors for a foreigner or two, but, I'd rather have as much of the cast as possible be native Japanese. The Okinakawa region isn't a typical hotspot for tourists since it isn't as big of a cultural icon as some of Japan's mainland cities, nor does it have a lot of significant tourist attractions except for its sub-tropical weather, it mostly attracts SEA-tourists, rarely western ones, with Japan being one of the most expensive countries in the world to both travel to and vacate in, it's not a very high rated tourist hotspot for non-SEAs.

When it comes to image reservations, that's fine, when you've posted up your image, consider it reserved. As far as roles goes, feel free to state your current ideas regarding the topic, what you'd like to do, and possibly why you're interested in the role, but don't consider it a safe reservation, I might swap it out for someone I consider more befitting the role.

Please be patient everyone, I'm sorry things are taking longer than initially intended.

I'm all for following the source material and going for employee PC cast. Also, I think I might want to reserve the role of a chef.

Yeah, with that stated I'll step back. I dun mind using Eastern art but having a Japanese character often becomes a bit tedious when getting into culture and height restrictions and all of that.

You guys have fun tho. Im sure I'll see some of you around.

At first I thought it would be fun to play a visitor but then a reality check made me think that at resorts visitors rarely mix with employees unless strictly on business, so apart from ordering drinks at a bar or food in the restaurant we'd end up with two groups working separately with very little contact. So in that instance I will vote for employees only. In addition to that employee groups often get up to more hanky panky than visitor groups (think cruise liner crews or holiday camp entertainers).

Kokaine - you may still have an opening for an Aussie or New Zealander.

It's fine my love, I take ages to get a group game up and running, often 2 to 3 weeks before I'm satisfied things are organised enough to start the first IC thread.

I've been searching online for images from the VN and found loads of porn images but none of the backgrounds. These would be great for scene settings - has anyone a link to a collection of them? Or something very similar that would also work?

Given the employees only possibility then I guess my lady will be some kind of manager or maybe an accountant or IT support type. She'll be in her mid 20s.

EDIT: The h-game my character comes from is called Tropical kiss. There might be some useful images from that as it seems to be a broadly similar thing, though more harem oriented.

Would say that he is a football (soccer) player currently taking time off during the Off-Season for some fun and genuine relaxation.

Uh yeah, I think my character is rather western looking despite being Japanese art. I was thinking of making her an expat. Possibly a tax exile or maybe she went there on a TEFL programme and never went home.

She looks fine to me. Her face is 100% anime style and while her outfit is a bier-keller fraulein style thing I hardly think that matters. Also blondes in anime are very common. If its an issue there are gazillions of waitress type anime girls out there you could use, it might even be the second most common type of image after schoolgirls (well, third most common after schoolgirls and naked girls I suppose...).

Nah. I chose that picture out of hundreds that came up on a Google search. I like how she looks. I think the issue is that when I was a kid we drew Japanese characters with little slits for eyes \./ like that. To see them drawn with big round eyes O.O looks wrong to me.

See, that's my view on the matter as well. It becomes a very... Unpleasant dynamic so to speak. Visitor-only games in these rough outlines pop up every so often, though I rarely see ones with both roles being open meshing well, and I'm not too interested in doing visitors only either. And yeah, that's definitely true, I heard a thing or two from a dancer at the Color Magic when I went to Kiel earlier this year, things do apparently get pretty heated sometimes to put it that way.

I'll put some more thought to it, but I'm still very much so on that side of the spectrum, and haven't heard much against it.

EDIT: I'll finally have time to properly work on a recruitment thread tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get something up during the weekend.
